The East Hampton Police Department is looking forward to moving into their new Police facility in February/March of 2020.  The new state of the art building will be attached to the new Town Hall and will encompass approximately 9,000 square feet.  The building will include, among other things, a 54 seat training room, gym, 5 prisoner holding cells and room for future expansion.

The East Hampton Police Department will be starting a recruitment process in June/July of 2019 to fill a future vacancy made by a retirement in December and to establish an eligibility list to hopefully add to our current staffing level of 4 Sergeants, 11 Officers and K-9 Ardo.
